Marathon in October

Sunday, June 17, 2012


I finally decided to sign up to run a marathon. I am going to run the Newport RI Marathon on Oct 14th. I am so excited but very nervous. http://amicamarathon.com/index.html Course Description The Amica Marathon and UnitedHealthcare Half Marathon cover a rolling course on scenic Newport and Middletown roads. Starting by the water in downtown Newport, the course runs through some of the most scenic spots on Aquidneck Island, including along historic Thames Street in downtown Newport, around Fort Adams State Park, past Hammersmith Farm and the Newport Country Club, around scenic Brenton Point and Ocean Drive and past the famous Bellevue Avenue mansions. After the marathon I will need to start thinking of what crazy event I want to do next :) any ideas???

Boston Ruckus June 2012

The Boston Ruckus is an exciting military style obstacles (over 20) compacted into a 4 mile run. The courses are designed for a wide range of participants and almost 100% of runners finish. Ruckus events are demanding enough for the elite, but achievable for all. It is all about having a unique, rewarding experience, that is as much fun as it is a challenge. I HAD A FRIGGIN BLAST!!!!! The pictures you see are only about a mile/mile and a half of the race. The rest was in the woods through the trails and fields. I have never done anything so hard but so fun! Also I am very surprised that I was able to do some of the obstacles...I must be in better shape than I thought! I can't wait to do this again next year. I really enjoyed pushing my self to do things I thought impossible and pushing myself to do  things that I very scared of. climbing a 10 foot wall DONE! gorilla bars Done. running and jumping through mud pits DONE. Wish I had a list of all the fun crazy things we did....BTW the cute red head with me is my team mate Claire! she and I kept together and cheered each other on!

Climbing this scared the crap out of me!


this was fun!!! and I fell :)
I actually really enjoyed climbing the walls!

Abington Half Marathon

Abington Tricentennial Half Marathon 

Plus side i finished ( 2hr16min) and Bill and Chase were at a few places around town to cheer me on! Negative I rolled my knee at mile 5 by tripping on a rock and the tendinitis in my feet flared up at mile 8. But i still finished! !!!!!!

Mile 1
Mile 4 and feeling great!

Mile 6. I was hurting here from tripping over a rock.
Mile 6

Mile 10 Chase was so cute waiting for me so he could give me a bottle of water! At this point I tossed the idea of stopping because the tendinitis in my feet had flared up but decided that I had gone this far and there were only three miles to go...

I am rounding the corner to the finish line!

Running to the end! 2hr 16 min...not to bad for being in pain for most of the run! Posted by Picasa
